Are your make up brushes causing you skin issues?

by Ruth Irwin on September 28, 2020

Most days if not every day we use our trusted make up brushes to apply our make up. Yet many of us are not washing our brushes regularly or with the right cleaner!

It's so easy to forget to wash our make up brushes and just layer over as we rush out the door but you could be creating long term skin issues and irritation from using dirty brushes. 

You should be washing your make up brushes used on your face at LEAST once a week - and that should be a deep soak in soap and water. 

Throughout the week it's fine to add a drop of cleaner to your make up brushes and rub off the access dirt with a cloth or tissue after each use. 

See below what issues can occur when you don't wash your brushes regularly and what soaps we recommend to keep them brushes clean!

Clogging up your pores

We are supposed to use make up brushes rather than our hands to avoid getting oil and dirt from our hands onto our face but if your brushes are holding more germs than your hands - there is no point! Your brushes are most likely going to clog up your pores with dirt and oil built up on the brushes. 

Pink eye

Dirty brushes can easily spread pink eye particularly by sharing brushes. The build up on your brushes can keep pink eye returning again and again.

Wrinkles

Yes wrinkles are highlighted on the face when unwashed make up brushes are used. It might sound bizarre but dirty make up brushes can expose the skin to these fine lines.
